After Amarnath Yatra pilgrims attacked, Know the current situation there


Lucknow: The holy pilgrimage to the cave shrine of Amarnath went in for a major shock when seven Amarnath pilgrims were killed and twelve, including three policemen, were injured when militants attacked a yatri bus and a police party in Anantnag which is along the Jammu-Srinagar Highway in South Kashmir on Monday.  The militants first attacked an armoured car of the police at 8.20 pm on Monday and when the police fired back, the militants fired indiscriminately and fled. It has been reported that the bus driver had violated rules for the pilgrimage. The rules state that no yatra vehicle should be on any highway after 7 pm. It is also being claimed  that the bus was neither a part of the main yatra convoy nor was it registered with the shrine board.


Reports suggest that the operation was carried out in unity by Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hizbul Mujahideen. The presence of three assailants has been reported, one of them, Ismail, reportedly arrived on a motorbike and emptied two magazines on pilgrims.
